Corporate governance and succession planning are in the spotlight in this special section in collaboration with Corporate Directors Forum.
Each year, Corporate Directors Forum honors San Diego's top directors with Director of the Year awards for outstanding performance in the boardroom and behind the scenes. A director's job is an important one, since he or she is elected by and accountable to the shareholders, and tasked with creating enterprise value.
One of the commonly voiced criticisms of directors is their failure to challenge management's plans, actions or assumptions -- to ask hard questions and stand up for the shareholders.
In an entrepreneurial community like San Diego, a company needs to be prepared with plans to replace a CEO, because no matter how important core executives are in the management of their companies, eventually they retire.
Join the Corporate Directors Forum in honoring outstanding performance in the boardroom.
